Screen! — The art of detaching!

We have to get a backup from Uni khi to the newly bought Dedicated box ! For that i asked Osama to do the backup stuff unfortunately he wasn’t able to do that! The only thing that he was doing was to wget the tar directory of the khi ! Without sending it to background i what i did was to send the wget to screen

screen -S wget -md wget somesite.com/some.tar.gz &
Would make a session named wget and -md would detach it

to resume screen -r wget  and to deatch from screen you can press ctrl+a+d

and this is it 🙂
